after confinement, release!

The fenua athletes were impatiently waiting for this moment: to practice their activity beyond the imposed kilometer during confinement. Today, everyone appreciates going further. A benefit for the body, a liberation for the spirit.

It was time ! Reconnecting with the kilometers in the mountains is Brigitte’s pleasure. After a difficult confinement, it finally finds its marks on the 7 kms of the road from Vaitavere to Punaauia. A real breath of fresh air in the heart of nature. “It’s especially good for morale, for the head, in nature, to stay at home. 1 km is not enough … During confinement, I ran around my house, it was monotonous. Then I ran around the neighborhood. Today is freedom, it was about time, I hope there will not be a second confinement “, says Brigitte a jogger.

Sunbathe on the water, not on the terrace

Like Brigitte, Michael and his friends once again enjoy being on the water for a foil session. A pure pleasure to slide again on the waves, without any restriction. “It is that after a while to be confined, it is a bit tiring. Suddenly, it feels good to go out to sea and to be able to move freely”, specifies the young man.

The longer it is …
